Nevada
The Wolf Pack went 19-12 last season under Steve Alford, finishing second in the Mountain West Conference. Nevada returns one starter from last season's Mountain West Conference runner-up and was picked sixth in the Mountain West preseason poll. Nevada's top returning scorer is sophomore Zane Meeks, who averaged 6.4 points per game. Similar to Nebraska, the Wolf Pack add a trio of transfers in Warren Washington (Oregon State), Grant Sherfield (Wichita State) and Desmond Cambridge (Brown). Nebraska leads the all-time series, 3-1, as the teams have not met since Nebraska's 78-68 win over the Wolf Pack in the 1997 NIT in Reno.

This will be a far tougher team than MSU. The stat I’m going to really watch is the Assists. As long as these guys all enjoy a great pass as much as a jumper, we’ll surprise some teams.

Here is 'The Skinny' from another site fyi: :Redface:

The Skinny:
Nevada started the season with an impressive throttling of North Dakota St, hounding the Bison to 48 points with their length in the post and athleticism. This team will probably lean on defense this year so you're getting more of a New Mexico than an UCLA Steve Alford squad. We should see another fast paced game as both teams will try to push the ball to generate transition offense.

The Wolf Pack rolls out a 3 guard offense and they'll do the heavy lifting in the scoring department which should kick the can down the road in terms of how good Nebraska's interior defense is. Defensively you'll see Nevada pack the lane and Nebraska should once again see a lot of wide open looks from 3. As long as Nebraska isn't ice cold and Nevada isn't destroying them on the offensive boards, look for you Cornhuskers to move to 2-0.

Prediction: Nebraska 82 - Nevada 72
----------------------------------------------------------------
Player to watch: SG Desmond Cambridge
The former Brown University star has a lot of ups, posting impressive block numbers for a 6'4" guard. Able to score from all 3 levels, he was held in check by foul trouble against North Dakota St.

Player to watch: PG Grant Sherfield
The Wichita St transfer is the starting PG for the Pack and led the team in points and shot attempts, needing 14 shots to net 14 points.

The Rest of the Roster
G Kane Milling has gone from freshman rotation player to starter but hasn't shown a ton offensively. Oregon St transfer Warren Washington and KJ Hymes provide rim protection for Nevada and the Wolfpack. Former Nebraska recruit Zane Meeks is Nevada's biggest offensive threat from the post, willing and able to shoot from 3. Robby Robinson is an elite rebounder who mostly scores on putbacks. True freshman Tre Coleman had an impressive debut, going 3-3 from three and chipping in 13 point in his first college game.

If these guys are as good on defense as advertised, then that extra pass could be the difference in the game.

Here is a quote from a Nevada Message Board:

1606413358908.png

Apparently we are a 3.5 point favorite (probably includes home-court advantage).

I think we'll learn a Lot about our team today! With Walker Suspended and Andre in quarantine, we don't have as much depth for the Bigs in the Post. Lat & Yvan need to stay out of foul trouble.

Yep it isn't the same shooting team as yesterday. They look good but need shots to start falling.
